Ichi Ni Nana Izakaya - Fitzroy
I've been to here a couple of time, fell in love with the food. Came here on Saturday and was super disappointed. The service you had to hunt for, the food was so average, I know restaurants have off nights , but the gyoza were cold in the middle and the karaage chicken was very dry. On the up side the desserts were beautifully presented and tasted amazing.
Good portion sizes on the Ume meal, surprisingly filling and tastes amazing.
Team is accomodating, as well as helpful and there whenever you need.
Sometimes a bit hard to get their attention but that always comes with busy places.
Sensational food and great service allowed us to relax and fully enjoy the evening.
We had a table of 16 and ordered a set menu style drop when first arrived. Great service, our head waiter was great and very accomodating. Fulfilled our needs for the night perfectly!
First time diner and I was very impressed with the ambiance of the restaurant, the food was amazing the wine and overall experience. Definitely be going back at some point.
We have an excellent time at Ichi Ni Nana, the food was top notch and so was the sake. Kurtis served us and he was exceptionally friendly and attentive, and he went above and beyond to make us all feel right at home.
Amazing service, food and vibe. We picked this placed based on its vegan options, but there are plenty of meat options.
One of the more classy restaurants in Melbourne and it has a super authentic Japanese feel.
Will be returning again soon.
Thank you Ichi Ni Nana Izakaya for everything.
Ps. Prices are super balanced considering the quality/ taste and presentation.
Lovely food and great service. Very nicely furnished and designed space!
Always great food and service, top quality. The food does come out quite quick when you order taps items but all very yummy.
Great Japanese restaurant! Loved the plum wine selections and all our food. Service was prompt and impeccable, what more could you want?
The restaurant itself is absolutely beautiful. The menu was strange for Japanese food (brown rice?) and it was extremely expensive. We only stayed for two cocktails and some renkon chips which were both nice.
really liked the vibe and food here.. will be back :)
Terribly overrated. There are so many better places to have Japanese.
Amazing food and amazing service! Booked for an anniversary and had a great night
Delicious food! The staff are always very helpful and attentive.
Amazing yet again never fails to impress we took some friends who don’t really like Japanese and had really never tried it they absolutely loved it.
smells taste presentation atmosphere was awesome staff friendly service fast very professional can’t fault one thing highly recommend 👍
Very quick service lovely food
Great service. Food was ok
Food was fine but overpriced for what was pretty standard fare. Cocktails were the same. The place had a lively atmosphere and seemed very popular. Unfortunately the service was very ordinary, bordering on rude at times. A dish we didn’t order came back to the table three times, with the waiter insisting we had ordered it. Empty dishes stayed on the table, even when more food was delivered. Won’t be back.
Food, service and ambience all top notch. Love this place!
We had a very nice and relaxed time. The staff are friendly, don't bother you unnecessarily but are somehow always around when you need them. The decor is funky, the food is excellent although I thought it was bit pricey, especially when the menu advertises it as "mushroomS", but you get just one, or the picture shows 4 king prawns on a skewer, but you just get one. But apart from that the food is flavoursome, delicious, well-presented and great quality. I'd recommend Ichi Ni Nana (127) for any group of adults who enjoy good food.
Staff were all so lovely, amazing food and drinks. Whole dynamic of the restaurant was amazing! We will definitely be back 🙌🏼
Love Love Love this place so much and highly recommend it, if you like modern Japanese that offers a bit of everything
Great food, great cocktails, great service. Service was quick and friendly and very helpful and the food was to die for. So delicious. Recommend for a great night out.
We brought our friend here for a birthday celebration at dinnertime. The food is decent - nothing spectacular however. What we were disgruntled at was the service of the staff. We understand that it was peak hour and there were a lot of customers to cater to, but the staff (who claimed to be the manager of the restaurant) took our orders wrongly, and 2 of the dishes only came a short while before our reservation was up. After which, he requested for us to finish up within the next few minutes (even though the food only came 5 minutes before - we were waiting for over an hour for all our food to come to the table). Dissatisfied, we requested to extend our dinnertime as it was technically an error on the waitstaff's part, but were just given takeaway boxes to pack our leftovers into. Very, very poor form.
Pure excellence, service, food and ambience were amazing. Will make a booking again in future.
Amazing food, waiters were spot on, great service. When ever we wanted anything or needed something they were there. Drinks were beautiful, the venue is great. Price is a bit expensive, could be a little cheaper, but if I had to I’d pay double for ichi ni nana
Food is always great. Service is good. Price is medium. Very noisy though at peak times, so it can be hard to hear someone when sitting across from each other on a table, probably not the best for a newer date.
The food is good, however pricey for the size, the biggest issue is the service. It’s near impossible to get someone to serve you. I asked not once, not twice, but 5 times where the Sake I ordered was. Only after being told on 3 occasions with 15 minute intervals the ones I had chosen were sold out, did they finally advise me of which was in stock. 2 further attempts to follow up where it was, after an hour had already elapsed, did it finally come out.
Considering sake is not prepared on site, this is just poor service.
My friends and I really enjoyed our night. It was pretty loud however the lighting and decor was beautiful. The food tasted amazing. It was pricey but worth it for sure. Our waiter was friendly but we felt he pushed some things onto us. One of us wanted edamame but he came out with 1 spicy and 1 plain. He recommended the egg plant however no one actually ordered it. When we turned it away he brought it back to us. We were charged for it too. Fortunately we weren't charged for something else so we didn't complain. Would love to see just a sushi platter.
Otherwise, great food and drinks. Would have loved to hear people talking Japanese too.
Food was epic. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Was a bit noisy out the back, we noted it was our anniversary and would have preferred a quieter table but was still alright
Booked a table for 6. I was seated and kept my guests waiting outside for 20 mins and refused to let them check the restaurant for me and stating there was no booking under my name which there was.
Once everyone was finally seated no issues with wait staff or food.
Fantastic service and even better food. Highly recommend
The músic was so loud that we couldnt enjoy chatting.
Food was amazing! Staff was so so lovely! The food came out at lightening speed and everything was fresh and delicious. Would love to come back again soon!
Place has s heartbeat great food, service was good only thing is we felt rushed to eat and get out couldn’t relax and enjoy our food and drinks ordered were taken at 7 and was told to leave by 8
The food portion and taste was adjusted to tailor the local market in Australia, which is not 100% ideal but interesting to try
Fabulous food & service. Great dining at this Japanese restaurant. We had a lovely evening... We live in regional Victoria but hope to return again later this year. Loved the music vibe but if we had friends dining with us maybe a tad too loud for group conversations so would request a quieter table. Many thanks
Amazing food. We went on a Saturday night at 6.15pm and the place was packed. Very noisy and hard to hear each other. Service was ok but a bit rushed only 1.45 hrs for servore and rushed out at 7.45 ready for the next booking. Waiter was friendly and ok service (missed a dish off) Fantastic food however on pricey side.
Welcomed by name, looked after with excellent food and service. Handbag left behind and manager couldn't have been more helpful in locating it. Definitely recommend.
